Get THIS! The overprotective parents of America WILL NOT REST until they eliminate everything that you remember loving from childhood. The latest target? Hide-and-seek.
Apparently, parents are now steering their kids away from hide-and-seek . . . because they think it makes them ANTI-SOCIAL and VULNERABLE to predators?
Here's the theory. In hide-and-seek, kids are encouraged to be SECRETIVE. They're encouraged to ignore people calling their name looking for them. And they're encouraged to find secluded, hidden places.
I'm not sure if that's going to make you ban your kids from playing hide-and-seek, but it's at least worth knowing that no matter how overprotective you are, there are ALWAYS parents who are crazier out there.
